Colour Create Challenge

Don't forget to enter my blog candy ! All you have to do is CLICK HERE !

Sorry again for the delay in writing up my post for this morning. It's Ski's 8th Birthday today and so its been a mad morning of card and present opening, school drop offs and visitors all morning with even more presents and cards ! What a lucky girl she is !!

This week's colour combo challenge on Colour Create was my choice and I chose Neon Green and Black with the extra option of leaves and charms. I made a card a while back with this colour combo and loved it. I'm not sure that the DT were too keen but my goodness, they have certainly come up trumps and their creations are amazing ! Some of them have even made two or even three projects with this colour combo this week !!!

This week's sponsor is Whiff of Joy and they have given us the Willow cathing Leaves stamp from their Fall Kit as a prize !

I gave my card to Ski for her Birthday today and she loved it !

The DP's are all BasicGrey. Lime Rickey and Lemonade.The image is the Manga Girl from Funky Kits and she has been coloured with ProMarkers.

Colours : Hair - mustard, sandstone, gold and cinnamon. Skin - ivory, blush and E001 Copic. Clothes - Lime and black. Boots - warm grey 5 and black. White gel pen for highlights.

The flowers are Bo Bunny ones (I think !). The little black flowers were orginally the same green as the black ones. I didn't have any black so coloured them with a black ProMarker.

The brads are Kaiser brads from Simon Says Stamp.

The leaves have been punched with a Woodware punch.

The tag I made myself and the sentiment is a Melissa Frances transfer from the birthday set also available at Simon Says Stamp.

The charm/coin I believe is a Tim Holtz charm. It says "wonderful" on it. This was sent to me by my mate Lorraine. Again, these are available to buy at Simon Says Stamp. The twine I also coloured black with my ProMarker.

The ribbons are from my stash.

The button was from my local craft shop and was originally black and cream until I attacked it with a lime ProMarker !!!

I also decorated the inside.

I hope you can join us this week. We can't wait to see your creations !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave.
